This is one of the more muffled and hissy master cassette SBDs from the '69 era. It sounds like there could be several analog generations in the lineage, though the lack of crisp sound quality might mostly be attributed to the master, which is reportedly degraded. Many analog related crackles and blemishes were embedded in the recording. Sound Forge was used to smooth or reduce most of the glitches, though many minor blemishes remain. Sound Forge was also used to normalize and correct the pitch.
